Please join us at the Wyoming State Capitol - Jonah Building on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, as we recognize American Heart Month and our fight against the No. 1 killer of women - heart disease.
Come be part of advocating for heart-healthy and stroke-smart policies in Wyoming, with advocates from across the Cowboy State! This year we are joining forces with the American Cancer Society – Cancer Action Network, along with the Wyoming Tobacco Prevention Coalition, to advocate for a $1.00 tobacco tax increase.
What: Advocating for Heart at the Wyoming State Capitol - Jonah Building
When: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Where: 9:00 a.m. at the Radisson Hotel of Cheyenne, 240 W Fox Farm Rd (Lunch provided); At 1:00 p.m., will head to the Jonah Building, 3001 E. Pershing Blvd.
Why: To learn grassroots advocacy skills, recognize American Heart Month and support the American Heart Association’s legislative agenda in the Cowboy State!
Your voice will help show support for policies that will build a healthier Wyoming! An increase of the tobacco tax will: deter youth from starting to smoke; encourage adults who smoke, to quit; generate revenue; and lower health care costs associated with smoking for all Wyoming residents and the state. Join us on February 13 and help #passthebuckWY!
